The coming revival must begin with a great revival of prayer. It is in the closet, with the door shut, that the sound of abundance of rain will first be heard. – Andrew Murray

dont you just love that quote.  doesnt it just resonate on the inside… it does me. thats why i totally love it and had to share it.  with two pictures….



Be Lifted High Album – I Will Exalt – Bethel


Your presence is all I need, It’s all I want and all I seek

And without it, without it, There’s no meaning.

Your presence is the air I breathe, The song I sing and the love I need

And without it, without it, I’m not living.

So I will exalt You, Lord. I will exalt You, Lord. There is no one like You, God. So I will exalt You, Lord. I will exalt You, Lord.

No other name be lifted high. There will be no one like You, No one beside You

You alone are worthy of all praise.


Cranium and crazy conversation at housegroup last week:   "Gibbon – isn’t that like an oboe"





Neutral Gets You Nowhere is a brilliant blog.  and today i happen to totally love it more (i loved it before that too though!~) because they used a quote i posted the other day.  share and share alike i reckon.  but their content is challenging and thought provoking and written in just the right way.  so many times i find myself nodding and saying, yeah, totally, with ya.  so want a new read… go check them out…





http://stickyjesus.com/ – another awesome blog/site i regularly check out is @stickyjesus and i’ve been so blessed and inspired by their latest few posts:

okay while i’m on a roll… i totally love STUFF CHRISTIANS LIKE – is the funniest blog.  its like a happy place to go to. 

for example: Just saw 1st blue bird of spring. Thought, “I bet I could slingshot that thing into a ton of pigs.” #toomuchangrybirds

but its not all fun and humour – its like thought provoking digs wrapped in a way that makes you smile and then get it…

today’s read was a “make ya smile one” though: Expecting All Emails to end with a God Shout Out

As I finished reading it, I noticed, with some dismay, that you closed it simply, “Dan”

Not “Worshipping with you in Christ, Dan”. Not “Yours in the Truth of the Scripture, Dan”. Not “In Christ Alone, who took on flesh, Fullness of God in helpless Babe, Dan”.

Not even “Totally Depraved, Dan.”

Just “Dan”

so in my happy place right now…



LOST dr linus

i changed my text message sound.  tone.  the thing that makes a noise when i get a text.  its now benjamin linus talking about the coffee pot in the staff room from season 6.  seriously, LOST makes me happy.



and as always.  i love Jesus with all i am and all my heart and all my soul and all my days. For His glory and the building of His kingdom and the rescue of the lost.
